A Virginia mother threatened to bring guns into a school over a mask mandate, prompting school officials to investigate the situation as a result.

“All right, no mask mandates,” a parent identified as Amelia King said during a school board meeting on Thursday,, according to news reports.

“My child — my children will not come to school on Monday with a mask on. All right, that's not happening. And I will bring every single gun loaded and ready to — I will call every—,” King said before she was interrupted by school officials who said she had gone past her three minutes for comment. 

A letter, which was signed by Page County Public Schools superintendent Antonia Fox and school board chair Megan Gordan, condemned the parent’s comments and said that they “go against the very nature of how we as a community should interact with each other.”

“PCPS is addressing this issue and is in communication with local law enforcement. At each PCPS school today and Monday, there will be increased police presence with support from the Page County Sheriff’s Office,” the letter, dated Friday, added. “The Luray Police Department will also provide additional police presence at the Luray area schools on Monday.”
